Time: 2:45PM – 3:45PM

Location: 1A15

Speakers: Brian Greene, Charles Soule, Dominic Walliman, Jim Ottaviani, Jonathan Coulton

Description: When it comes to understanding the complexities of life and sparking scientific curiosity, we often leave the challenge up to educators, journalists and scientists – but what about comic book creators? Amongst the adventures of spandex-clad superheroes like Batman and the everyday life observations of Harvey Pekar, comic book characters are throwing on lab coats, mixing toxic substances, traveling on expeditions to study wild chimpanzees and teaching us about the origins of life. With the help of an ink pen, science can escape the rigid confines of the textbook and inspire future scientists through thought bubbles and color-rich scenes. Brian Greene, professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University and co-founder of The World Science Festival, will introduce a conversation moderated by Jonathan Coulton, singer songwriter and now comic book co-creator. The panel features Jim Ottaviani, New York Times Best-Selling author of Feynman and the newly released Primates; Charles Soule, author of 27, Strange Attractors and the brand new Letter 44; and Dominic Walliman, quantum physicist and author of the upcoming Professor Astro Cat’s Frontiers of Space. In this program, part of the World Science Festival’s ongoing Science & Story series, these heralded authors and artists will discuss their work and explore how the combination of art and storytelling can make science relevant and engaging to a broad audience.

  1. Torsten Adair says:

    There’s just the Empire Stage in 1-E.
    No other panels.
    Is that entire room being turned into Hall H?

    http://www.javitscenter.com/plans/plan_1e_hall.htm
    Specifications
    Gross sq.ft. 45,000 sq.ft.
    Occupancy 3,090 for Meeting Rooms 1,545 for Trade Shows (If the walls are removed, I’d estimate 3,500 – 4,000 seating.

    1-D is 30,000 sq.ft. 3,045 seating.

  2. Miguel says:

    Tortsen, much of Hall 1E, will be used for the Empire Stage. It will be second largest panel room, and seat roughly 2,000 people. The Main Stage (formerly the IGN theater) will only be larger with 3000 seats.
